The Anniversary Story of Codecamp Iasi (10-20 May 2017)

Did you have fun at Codecamp Iasi? We know we had a blast. This past May we celebrated our 10th year anniversary. We want to thank our partners, speakers and attendees for helping us refine the Codecamp mission: to build an IT community like no other.

Great things have happened between May 10 and May 20. We’ve had challenging masterclasses, conferences, and a cool hackathon with practical insights on “How to Develop a Habit of Learning”. We’ve welcomed some of the brightest minds in the IT scene to participate in a race for solutions aimed at solving issues in industries like fin-tech, public transportation, auto, and more.

What happened at the Masterclasses

Top international trainers and IT specialists rocked Codecamp’s Masterclasses. Our attendees learned useful tips and tricks on a range of technologies and disciplines. We were blown away by the energy, and desire to learn of all attendees.

We divided the workshops in 2 days; to give the speakers enough time to share their knowledge and interact with the participants. The topics covered a range of disciplines and technologies, including architecture, Java, .NET, security, and web apps.

Six speakers shared their insight, each focusing on a specific topic of interest. In case you missed the topics, here’s the overview.

Dino Esposito wowed us with some really cool stuff about the art of building software. Author of many popular books on ASP.NET and software architecture, Dino emphasized that a more modern view of DDD, moving the accent onto a different part of the DDD theory—the strategic design patterns—which definitely help in keeping a software project right on track.

“I believe that ASP.NET Core is absolutely crucial for the future of web development on the Microsoft stack. However, for the time being, I don’t consider it to be truly mature from prime time with a few exceptions.

My workshop is mostly about making scenarios that really give business value on .NET Core and ASP.NET Core in particular the evidence and to get people’s attention on those scenarios while making it clear that the present and the future of web development on the Microsoft stack is using the MVC application model which is the only application model supported on Core. So Core is here and will last but is not necessarily a must at this time.”

What happened at the Conference

The Codecamp 2-day International Conference was a real success. We loved the energy, enthusiasm, and the drive of everyone present to learn more about cool topics in the areas of architecture, microservices, continuous delivery, Docker, Java 8 & 9, DDD, security, databases, Node.js, JavaScript, React, Data Driven UI, AI/AR/VR and many more. The first day of the conference (May 12) was split into 3 different tracks.

Raoul-Gabriel Urma kick-started track 1 with some insight into Pragmatic Functional Refactoring with Java 8. There’s been a lot of buzz around functional programming lately. Java 8 recently introduced new features (lambda expressions and method references) and APIs (Streams, Optional and CompletableFutures) inspired from functional ideas such as first-class functions, composition, and immutability. Raoul-Gabriel Urma has shed light on the transition from Java 7 to Java 8 and from Java 8 to Java 9 in a short interview:

“From Java 7 to Java 8 there’s quite a Big Change on how we think about writing code and how we’re making code. Java 8 has many functional programming features which help make the code more readable and maintainable over time.

In terms of Java 8 to Java 9 these are still early days. At the moment Java 9 is still in early access. There’s a lot of discussion about using the module system which makes it a bit unclear whether the community is ready to make use of that. However, Java 9 does include different API additions to streams, collectors, optionals and completable features.
Java is probably one of the last languages to really hop on the functional programming bandwagon. It’s a bit late. Functional programming makes things fun again in Java. More importantly it helps write flexible code and reduces the scope for bugs. Those are characteristics that any software developer should embrace.”  

Watch Raoul’s full interview here:  

Next, we had Axel Fontaine share some insight into “Immutable Infrastructure: Rise of the Machine Images”.

“I strongly believe that by having less moving parts in your infrastructure when you have your production environment you actually want something that’s as deterministic as possible. This is what immutable infrastructure brings to the table because this is how you know exactly what is present in each machine, by having the machines being derived of some kind of image when you then create instances. If there’s any issue with those instances, you don’t log in and modify them anymore. You just throw them away, create a new one and deploy the new one. You have a highly deterministic process where you can guarantee that you have the same code running across all environments from development all the way to production.” – Axel Fontaine.

Chander Dhall took some time to share with us some tips on scaling a mid-sized application.

“It’s not only about scaling but about the performance that goes in behind it. It’s not only the database but the APIs, the offline processing, the no sequel part, etc. There are so many things to consider when making sure your performance is good. It’s not just regular code but code that works and at the same time scales and performs well.
If you have a mid-size application, whatever you choose, make sure it is something that you can scale later. For example, if you choose a database for no sequel, make sure that it’s something that gives you things you think of today but also things that you may want a few years later.” 

Watch the full interview here:

Still concerned with your Windows Security? Greg Tworek has been working with Windows Security since the very beginning of his professional career. He shared:

“If we leave any hole in the guard of the Windows Operating System, it’s very easy to get in and go around and break the whole protection. Sometimes it’s a hard drive that you can take out of the laptop and analyze it somewhere else, sometimes it’s about a week admin password, etc. The point is that if there is one weak point, that can break everything up.”

Other cool speakers and topics covered:

  • Alex Moldovan – “Fun and Practical JavaScript”
  • Cornel Stefanache – “Data Driven UI”

The Most Useful and Interesting New Features in Java 8

Java 8

According to the Tiobe index for February 2017, Java is one of the most searched programming languages, ranking number one in the index.

When Java 8 was released three years ago, the IT community saw it as a huge improvement to Java, tackling every aspect of the programming language, including JVM (Java Virtual Machine), the compiler, and other help-system enhancements.

Nowadays, Java 8 is famous among developers for many features. The most useful and interesting ones can be found below.

Lambda Expressions

Although lambda expressions are popular in functional programming, Java didn’t support them before 2014 and was thus missing one of the most efficient ways to write code. Java 8 introduced lambda expressions to provide a simple syntax to create and use lambdas.

Prior to lambda expressions, developers had to use anonymous boilerplate classes with lambdas which was a tedious process. With lambda expressions, functions can be used anywhere and can be treated as code.

In order to use lambda expressions, you need to use a comma-separated list of parameters or collection, and the symbol “->” within the body. In the example below you can see the syntax of the lambda expression:

Arrays.asList(“k”,”l”,”m”).forEach( m -> System.out.println(m));

Java 8 also introduced the concept of functional interface to allow functions to take lambdas as arguments. In Java 8, lambda expressions are treated as a special implementation of a functional interface, meaning that, in order to receive a lambda as a method argument, that argument’s declared type only needs to be a functional interface.

JavaScript Nashorn

Nashorn is the replacement introduced by Java 8 for the old Rhino JavaScript engine. Nashorn is an implementation of the JavaScript language written to run on the Java virtual machine or JVM.

In terms of speed execution, Nashorn can be compared to SpiderMonkey and V8. It also uses some features from Java 7, such as invokeDynamic for faster execution, and is considered a big improvement to older Java versions. Developers can now write JavaScript code directly into their Java code without execution speed, compatibility or interoperability issues.

Date/time APIs

Another great addition to Java 8 is the complete date/time API. Before it, developers would use Joda, the go-to Java date time API, which wasn’t very good but was used by Java developers to compensate for the lack of support.

Given the complexity of the Java API library, Java 8 rewrites the whole API from scratch, adding a new method to the Date class called toInstant() which converts it to the new API. This enables developers to make a quick jump to the new API even if you’re working with code that uses the old Date API.

Here’s an example of the new API:

//Creating Objects.

LocalDateTime a1 = LocalDateTime.now(); // this will return current date and time.

LocalDate.parse(“02:53:15”); // Simple string input

Stream API

Thanks to the lambda syntax, Java 8 also included the Stream API, which enables developers to work with Collections. The Stream API helps developers look at Java collections from a new angle. The complete documentation on the Stream API can be found here.

With the help of lambda functions and the Stream API, developers write more meaningful, simpler code.  

Some believe that Java 8 is an epochal release of the Java platform. The introduction of lambdas has brought more functional programming abilities into Java, while other features are perfect for working with asynchronous programming. Everything marks a big step forward for the Java language, enhancing Java development and making it more efficient and more interesting.
